I lost almost 30lbs two years ago and since then have bounced back and forth between 130-135lbs. I am ready to lose the last 5lbs now. My goal weight is 128. Right now I am 133 so that's 5 lbs.
In order to get there I need to work out 2-3 times a week and improve some of my eating habits. Cutting down on snacks and maybe calorie counting again.


May 24 09-160 lbs, This was one of the worst wake up calls of my life...when I stepped on that scale which I had avoided for so long. After seeing that number, I decided to try to change my habits, and this time I set a realistic plan for how to do it.
June 22 2009-150lbs. I had finally set out to lose weight and actually accomplished my goal. I had stuck almost completely to my plan and was amazed. It felt like maybe I could finally control my weight.
July 31-140lbs. I reached my original goal made when I saw that horrible number on the scale. After that I tried to regroup my priorities and decide what a truly healthy weight for me would be, because I knew I wasn't there yet.
December 23-132.5lbs. My weight loss has slowed down, but not my commitment.

June 1 2011- I was at 129 steadily for the first time in my life after studying abroad and cutting down on diary products and sugary snacks.

    Welcome to the EE team!!

    I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!!

    Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post.

    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success!

    ~~best of luck to you on all of your goals!!!

    I'm so very glad that you've joined the Emotional Eaters Team. The team is a place where you can vent. And where you will receive some awesome support. Of course, I am biased ... it's a great team! I hope you find exactly what you are looking for! Welcome to the team!

    Be sure to ask questions if you have them ... someone will likely have the answer. If you haven't started using the tools SparkPeople provides, do! They are invaluable. Track your food, track your exercise ... it will make you see what you are actually doing and see where changes are needed or where you can pat yourself on the back. If you feel an emotional eating attack coming on, come to the boards first. Write about it instead of pushing the feelings away with food. We're here for you!

    Eat well, journey well,
